Rumor: New Canon EOS C300 for NAB?

German site slashcam.de (Google translation) reports a rumor about Canon announce a new, and cheaper, model of the EOS C300 at NAB 2012. Cheaper because it would not have interchangeable optics.

This would make somewhat sense, since yesterday Nikon  (thanks Scotch) Sony announced two new models of C300’s direct competitors: the PMW-F3K/RGB and the PMWF3L/RGB (click here information), and both should be cheaper (but I couldn’t find a price so far) than the actually available C300 (around $16,000 body only), which, btw, just started shipping a month ago. The murmured “special edition”-C300 could hence be the chance for Canon to drop prices one step further and to counter Nikon’s announcement.

Let’s see what’s happening.
